Colon, comma?

I also thought to myself "WTF?" when I heard Julian, GWJ's professional writer, say that. Maybe he was visualizing a semicolon and his mouth farted out "colon comma." IMAGE(http://aahaaram.files.wordpress.com/2012/03/smiley-laughing002.gif)

Oh jeez, I was just daydreaming about Jeff being on during the 300th show. What a treat!

Always a pleasure to listen to the podcast on the way home from work. I am kind of surprised though on this specific podcast when going through upcoming games they didn't mention FTL! (LINK)

Last 3-4 podcast they raved about this game but the week it comes out, not a peep. Main reason I'll be purchasing this game was because of GWJ.

Thanks!

Great to hear Jeff's dulcet tones.

(Holy crap. That is a life sized Zelda.)

The discussion about justifying your gaming time reminded me of one of my favorite Green Speak columns that Jeff Green wrote in the June 1999 issue of Computer Gaming World called "A Real Grim Fandango." It basically reiterates what he said in the podcast, but is a good read anyway. You can find the column in the very back of the issue here:

Wait until next show as then people who didn't Kickstart it will have their hands on it ... finally.

Sorry, but Julian is not GWJ's only professional writer. #hurtfeelings

In this case professional means "old" and "shuts down magazines."

Correct.

Look at the bright side, now you can lord this faux pas all over him!

You're also an editor, though.

In Julian's defense, he is generally wise enough to know that he is a writer, not a copy-editor.

I'm a sh*tty editor.

boo. Y'all should have grilled Jeff over the firing of George Fan right after announcing PVZ2.

also, "Colon, f*ck you" should be the title of a game where someone is really angry at their own colon.

And he was going to retire the day before all this sparkle pony sh*t started

I propose that the GWJ community create a game in honor of Ianunderhill.
